Notice determination

October 19, 2020  – Indigenous Services Canada has determined that the proposed Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte Remedial Action Plan is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.

The determination was based on a consideration of the following factors:

  • There will be positive impacts on the rights of Indigenous peoples, associated with the remediation of four parcels of land impacted by metals, petroleum hydrocarbons and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons;
  • Remediation work allow the First Nation the unrestricted use of the parcels;
  • During construction activities mitigation measures to ensure the protection of the environment, and safety of members of the community will be implemented.  Mitigation measures proposed for the project have been prepared and reviewed by ISC.

 Implementation of mitigation measures is required for the project to address:

  • Potential effects to surface and groundwater
  • Potential effects on species at risk (Flora and Fauna)
  • Potential effects on migratory birds
  • Potential effects on fish and fish habitat
  • Potential effects on air and noise
  • Spill response and waste management

Indigenous Services Canada is satisfied that that the carrying out of the project is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.

Therefore, Indigenous Services Canada may carry out the project, exercise any power, perform any duty or function, or provide financial assistance to enable the project to be carried out in whole or in part.
